About

Situated on a bluff across from the beach, West Cliff Inn is a Four Sisters Inn and was built as a private home in 1877. Fully remodeled two years ago, the stately, three-story Italianate Victorian with its spacious, wraparound porch features a breezy, coastal décor with fabrics in crisp blues and whites. All but one of the ten well-appointed guest rooms feature a fireplace, marble tile bathrooms, and most with jetted spa tubs and king beds featuring plush pillow-top mattresses. One second-floor room has a private, outdoor jetted hot tub; two spacious top-floor suites have separate sitting areas and oversized bathrooms. Each room has high-speed Internet access, an iPod™ player, and a television with a DVD player.

Can't beat the location

This is a very quaint Victorian in walking distance from the wharf and boardwalk in Santa Cruz. The staff is very nice. The breakfast is great with a variety of food offered daily. The wine/cheese in the afternoon was also very tasty. There is always an abundance of fresh baked cookies for the snack if you need one.


Amazing stay at West Cliff Inn

We quickly booked 1 night at the West Cliff Inn last weekend, deciding on the smallest room since we knew we had to be up and on our way. We were VERY pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to their best room for the night!!! Gorgeous view of the Santa Cruz Wharf, lovely afternoon wine and appetizers, and breakfast was delicious! We will definitely return! A real gem!!!!


Wonderful Bed and Breakfast!

We stayed here for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of our experience. The room was amazing with a fireplace (not needed) and a large deck with a spa. Just a short walk from the Boardwalk.I highly recommend it!


Great stay!

We stayed one night in the King Spa Suite with outdoor hot tub and it was the perfect end to a pretty day with a delicious recommended dinner at Ristorante Avanti. The bed was soft, the room was clean, there was an A/C unit since we've had record breaking heat, and it was convenient short walk to the beach, with more than anticipated luxurious egg/swiss/mushroom omelette, blueberry pancakes, cheddar scones, and other delicious treats - couldn't have asked for more.

Just Where I Wanted To Be

4.8 on March 19, 2017

For years I lived in Santa Cruz and would walk or drive past this property and wonder... And, now, I know. It's just as wonderful inside as out. Our room had a killer bed, killer shower, killer tub, killer fireplace, and a killer view. The breakfast was delicious. The wine and cheese afternoon treat was wonderful. The homemade cookies? Couldn't pass that jar in the lobby without stopping. And the location can't be beaten.


Perfect Stay

This house has been lovingly restored and provides a wonderful base from which to explore the Santa Cruz area. The generous jars of freshly baked cookies seals the deal!


Lovely property

4.2 on March 13, 2017

This is a really stunning property. Rooms were gorgeous and the bed was super comfortable. Breakfast ticked the boxes in the morning and both mornings had a different option. Could do with a tad more variety however understand that they don't want waste.
